I brake for Halloween Frames...

Hi everyone! It's Monica from Taylormadecards4u. It has been such fun sharing Halloween cards! But it is even more fun when you can create a Halloween card using a Non-Halloween stamp.  I created this frame using the Daisy background stamp along with some frame die cuts.

I knew I wanted to make a frame, but that was as far as I had gotten. I had a new container of Nuvo embellishment sitting on my desk, so I rubbed it on my stamp and tried to stamp with it. So here is a tip, you can't stamp with Nuvo Embellishment paste. But it did leave an impression on my cardstock in some areas, so I decided to stamp right over it using my Black archival ink. It was just enough to add some great color to my frame. 

From there, it was just a matter of getting out my die cuts and creating my frame along with my pumpkin focal point.

As added embellishments, I added some of the Halloween clippings and numbers from the Tim Holtz idea-ology collection.

I Brake for Sweet Teddys!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card for a new baby girl.
My friend commissioned me to make a card for her coworker and sent me a picture of the nursery for inspiration.

I used SWEET TEDDY on my card.

Here's Charlie's nursery.  Pretty sweet isn't it?!

This bear certainly lives up to his name...Sweet Teddy.

On the inside of my card I used LITTLE GIRLS.
I absolutely love this verse.  It's just so perfect for a little girl.


I Brake for Weddings!

Hello Everyone, 
Today I'm sharing a wedding card with you. A recent wedding inspired this card. I think the elegant sentiment fits the card well.  I also used Spellbinders A2 Devine Eloquence as well as My Mind's Eye Niche "Fancy That" die sets along with Want 2 Scrap Baby Bling Pearls.

Stamp used: On Your Wedding

Until Next Time..


I Brake For....Elegant Pumpkin!

Hello stampers - Nancy here and today I have a card that is all about October!  Take a look...

This beautiful pumpkin filled with fall foliage is called Elegant Pumpkin and can be found here.

There are many pumpkin stamps out there but the reason I LOVE this one is that it is not a jack-o-lantern, or cute, but has a nice elegance to it.  Look at the luscious blooms that fill this pumpkin!   Everything screams fall and this is perfect for a fall birthday or even a wedding card.  It's a really nice size too -  about 3.5 x 3.75 - enough to make a statement on a card.

I enjoyed coloring this up - I used copic markers and went to town with the colors of autumn.  Lots of orange, yellow and green with touches of red and brown.    I found some old Basic Grey paper in shades of orange and love the bottom design - a perfect elegant pattern for this stamp.

Even though I used patterned paper and a fancy edge tag, I can see this image on a clean and simple card as well,  The overall design is so nice it can stand on its own.

I hope you will hop on over to the IBFS store and take a look at this and all the fall/winter stamps that are available.  I'm sure you will find something to your liking!

Thanks for stopping by today!


I Brake for Postcards!

Hi everyone! It's Monica from Taylormadecards4u. I am here today with my Monday share. I wanted to create a Postale theme without actually creating a post card. 

The postale marks in the left hand corner as well as the mini airplane are from the set Travel,Planes and Letters.  The sentiment is from Inspirational Plate #2 set.

I added some washi tape to a 4.25" x 5.5" card base then adhered a 4" x 5.25" piece of black card stock to it.  I cut out a piece of the red and white cardstock using a rectangular stitch die and a smaller piece to stamp my images.

As added embellishments, I added some round postale rub ons. 

Thanks for stopping by!
